Red Farm

When we ordered the Pac Man shrimp dumplings at Red Farm, we had no idea they would come out looking like Pac Man! The presentation value alone makes them worth ordering.

The pork & crab soup dumplings are not your average soup dumpling - the broth has a rich smoky flavor. The egg roll is also a riff on tradition, made with Katz's pastrami and so good.

The crispy skin chicken has a great crunchy skin and is served with garlic sauce; vegetable fried rice in the background.

The Bowery Diner

The Bowery Diner is a great, modern diner with an excellent brunch - starting with doughnuts! This one is orange blossom, with a delicious bloody mary behind it.

I loved the chocolate frosted doughnut oozing with pistachio cream.

 The Colombian breakfast is amazing and worth returning many times for - thick cut slices of bacon, crispy on the edges and scored into chunks; spicy sausage; fried eggs; plantain cakes; salsa; queso fresco; avocado and fried eggs. Amazing.

The burger is also a hit - thick and juicy in a buttery bun with a side of fries and a pickle.
